Rights of way improvement plan

The rights of way improvement plan (ROWIP) is a strategy that helps to target resources towards achieving Darlington’s vision for countryside access.

This aim follows the findings of national, regional and local research, which show the importance of improved countryside access. These benefits include the value of exercise to mental and physical health, the importance of having public support for action and the use of resources to improve the green environment.

There is also a need to reverse the increasing gulf between the urban population and the people in the rural areas.
